THE DISTRAUGT POETESS

Alas, about to smash her pen, Fool that she is~ thinking, oh so wrongly, That comments "make"a poem, a gem? Why no! Hardly! Hapless, foolish poetess! Where are your brains? You know your poem is more than good. Stop looking for personal fame! You need a fan club to honor your work? (and yes, some do demand it, total poetic jerks!) Just knock off being so superciliously arrogant! Your poetry is a gift to you~ From God in heaven. Now!In all humility~ get on with it. September 24, 2019 *** A special thank you to Matthew Amish for alerting me to the typo in the title...PR***

I understand what you mean here.Many wonderful poems here go unread and they are gems just as brilliant as others that have comments. More than half the comments we get here are meaningless, but sometimes we get comments from people who truly "get" us, and those comments (at least to me) are so meaningful. I'm so glad to have met you here, Panagiota. You are a unique and fun individualist from whom I learn a lot. And that is how I like my friends!

Glad life is a snap for you. Congrats. Not afraid to be who I am in a poem. Some understood me. We are not the same, any of us PR

You are a saint! Not me. I just wrote soupmails this morning to poets promoting your new poem. I have no halo. Panagiota.

A great poem to let off steam - once this distraughtness is screamed out of you into a pillow or put down on paper, one feels a whole lot better. And in any case your poems no one could ever find fault with, and you feel happy with them, and soup loves them. So get on with it girl and pen us some more of your outstanding gems. Love and kisses Panagiota mou, Jennifer.

Feeling a bit off today. There are over 700 poems I wrote...others too! It's nutty to write a new one daily, unless inspired. People can read my other poems. Same for you,we are all prolific as is Such soothing words, Jennifer mou You keep your pen going. Please? Panagiotaxxxxx

Tell it the way you feel it needs to be said and fuggedaboutit! You are an excellent poetess from what I have read, though I don't have the smarts or poetic knowledge to leave a whole lot of helpful feedback. Still, I appreciate you.

No feedback needed. Your reply is complete as it. I know diddly about poetic forms. Nor am I here to impress anyone with prowess in imagery, I am just me. I thirst for poets with real souls, there are many here Thank you for commenting. Panagiota

Inspiring words for poets and poetesses. I think you meant "distraught". Peace & Love Matthew Anish

Nicely written, if you feel what you write is a masterpiece then that is good enough. You really don't need comments to tell you what you know already. Tom

Indeed my friend, how right you are. It's so nutty ~ demanding comments. It's akin to me asking others to validate who I am. Nutty. Thanks for being my coach!)) Panagiota Or like asking for gold stars from my teacher or a high grade. Love from the USA... Panagiota
